Girls Sponsorship for Education | Pakistan

Ali Yusufali and Sohail Abdullah visit some of the 141 secondary and higher education students CAI donors support in rural areas of Pakistan. These girls come from financially strapped families who face immense cultural pressures to educate their daughters. Meeting them personally and hearing their zeal to acquire what should be a fundamental right is heartening. CAI plans on sponsoring many more girls in such remote areas of Pakistan

The picture below shows the 29 secondary school girls CAI sponsors in Kardala, Muzaffarabad, AJK.

CAI Equips Maternity Ward | Pakistan

With Pakistan’s high maternal and child mortality rates, compounded with poor healthcare facilities and services, CAI is pleased to sponsor equipment for the maternity ward at Al Kauthar Hospital, a JBHT project north of Islamabad. This facility will provide top-tier healthcare services to underserved and marginalized patients along the northern corridor of Pakistan, from as far west as its border with Afghanistan to the remote parts of Baltistan, a critical life-saving option for mothers to deliver safely instead of rushing to the center of Islamabad for urgent medical care.

• Ob/Gyn Ward with 10 beds

• Special delivery beds 2 + 7 baby warmers

• Monitors 30

• General beds 30

• Electric recovery beds 4

• Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with 4 beds and incubators

• Neonatal Nursery with 4 beds and baby warmers

• Obstetrical Emergency with 3 beds

• Pediatric Ward with 6 beds + 2 baby warmers

• Recovery Room with 4 beds + 2 baby warmers
